Default Waterproofing an ESC

Ok, I am a R/C car guy and I want to waterproof my E-Maxx's ESC so I decided to post here with the water experts. I am guessing that some of you guys and gals dont have waterproof ESCs and have had to waterproof it yourselves, how can this be done?? I was thinking about putting some silicone around the ESC, I am going to be driving in the snow and probably mud and some puddles but I would rather the waterproofing be over protective then under. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated

Well I got so epoxy and am going to do that because that looks more reliable and I dont want to have to keep changing the ballon when moisture builds up in side

If any of you are a highschool student and are in science research, ask your teacher for some parafilm. It stretches beyond belief and conforms to anything.
